and c.e.o. gary kelley. my first question: why did you do the deal? >> first of all, airtran brings us a number of things. they have a safe low cost high quality operation. they have a strong low fare brand. but most importantly, it provides us an opportunity to expand our route network. they fly places that we don't. we have very little overlapping routes. but notably, their largest operation is in atlanta. and we have no service to atlanta at all, as one example. it brings us more access to new york's laguardia airport, as well as first-time access for us to reagan national airport in washington d.c.. >> susie: where kelly, why did you do it now? >> i feel like we're ready now. first of all, things are so much better today than they were a year ago. our profit outlook is solid. we have plenty of cash on hand. we have a very strong balance sheet, with credit rating agencies affirming our credit rating today. so financially we're very well prepared for this. we also have a very strong leadership team. who is ready to add this major task to our list. and then we have the tools in place
just over three weeks ago. a state department official said today the u.s. was disappointed that israel allowed the building moratorium to expire. u.s. official middle east envoy george mitchell heads back to the region tomorrow with stops in israel and ramallah. both sides have accepted an invitation to resume talks in paris next month. >> ifill: for more on what's holding these talks together so far, we turn to ghaith al-omari, the advocacy director for the american task force on palestine, and a former advisor to president abbas. and david makovsky, senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy and the co-author of "myths, illusions, and peace." for let's talk about myths, illusions and peace, gait al on ari. what happened today. why didn't the palestinians walk away from the table as they promised they would if the settlements were not frozen. >> because they realized that the price of walking out from the talks is very high s very high from a domestic strategic perspective. ultimately they have no choice. and if you want to get a palestinian state the only way to g
for education reform and health care reform. it allows us to move forward and get things done on energy and what we want most is... help our economy to start to thrive and grow and innovate again. >> rose: we conclude this evening with laird hamilton, the extraordinary surfer, and susan casey, the author of a book called "the wave: in pursuit of the rogues, freaks, and giants of the ocean." >> the planet is mostly ocean and life comes from the ocean. and so one of the things i really aim to do with my writing is to take people into these places and show them the incredible majesty and in some cases the fear and in some cases the wackiness. but there's, like, a parallel universe. and it's in our world that we live in. how often do we see it. >> and if you part patriot, then you'll appreciate, then you'll revere. so all of those things i think are so critical in what needs to happen for the ocean. we need these books, we need these waves, we need people to be in awe of them maybe at first, to participate in activities and then ultimately be pro active in trying to protect the ocean. >> rose: melod
family housing as an investment. if the three of us decided to go in together on a real estate investment and i said i have a plan. we'll build a 3,000 square foot house that will fit only one family you would say to me that's not a very good plan. we should bill a building where we can maximize the amount of rent that flows through it and have people with just as much living space as they need. the single family house in america is a poor investment by design. go back 30 years and you had houses that were 1700 square feet. today they've come down over the past year a little bit but they're still 2400 square feet own though the size of the average american family has gotten smaller over that time. clearly houses today are mostly consumption. they're not designed for investment. there's nothing wrong with home ownership. just don't go into it thinking you're going to get rich. go into it because you have a lot of money and you want something nice. >> brown: carl case, what do you think about that? >> i agree with that. there are negative surprises that happen when you buy a home too. i mea
's new generation. >> the phrase that he kept on using time and again in his speech was my generation, the new generation. the reason he was doing that is he wants to separate himself away from tony blair and gordon brown and their eria in government. he was a very critical of the war in iraq. he said it was a wrong and that britain undermined united nations. not everyone in the hall like that. >> off iraq divided our party and our country. many sincerely believes the world face a real threat. i criticize nobody, faced with making the toughest decisions, and i honor my troops who fought and died there, but i do believe we were wrong. >> he was also critical on the labour record on regulating banks. he argued that britain did not do enough to make sure its economy was stable. the other thing he wanted to separate himself up from was the unions, the people who helped to elect him. he said he was not "red ed." he also said the unions should not give in to overblown rhetoric when it comes to opposing the cut from the deficit. he would not oppose every cut a coalition government proposed.
